Someone was turning one and I wanted to give her a present for her birthday. I accompanied my mother and sister to Toys R Us where the shelves were stocked full of goods any child would be happy to have. But no, none of these items were to be my present for my cousins little girl. She would not be getting what she wanted from me. Instead I gave her some odd little felt barrettes that were made by my very own person, and in the good old U.S.A. She will have to grow a bit more hair in order to wear them.

I borrowed my brother's girlfriend's head to model, since her hair had the capacity to hold in a barrette, and she was the least likely person in the room to protest and run away. Thanks Kim for taking the pictures.





I had more felt left over, so I made some for my little girl, she won't leave them in her hair, instead she likes to take them out and suck on them. Ick, slimy felt. So I wear them instead.

Ooo! Pam, those are so pretty! You should make a bunch and sell them.

You should make some for the girlfriend (if she wants them that is) They look so good in her hair. I think I will forever be jealous of your project skills. Thats why I married into the family, for the mad skills. Computer hacking skills...

I don't think you should sell them. They are cute but come one they are a choking hazard! AND to have them look like those pictures you will have to have a little girl suck on each one, maybe you could get away with her just licking them before you sold them.
Hmmm, that girlfriend is no longer a girlfriend from what I hear...she could wear them with her wedding dress. Can you make white once?

If I can find the motivation to make more I might try selling some, but right now I have a whole list of other things I'd like to accomplish. Making more barrettes would require lots of old movies to sit and watch, and I'm just not feeling like sitting around in front of the T.V. right now, maybe when winter rolls around.
